As a long time sufferer of chronic back pain from years of martial arts training, I came to Maria after seeing many acupuncturists and massage therapists. Maria is the only one that has been able to successfully heal and manage my condition effectively. Today I have virtually no discomfort and see Maria to manage my symptoms periodically. Maria is a natural and gifted healer and a practitioner with incredible insight and abilities to diagnosis and treat patients with great success. I am lucky to have found such an incredible person.
I highly recommend Maria Margate to anyone seeking a qualified and experienced acupuncturist and massage therapist. I had never tried acupuncture before and was hesitant at first. Maria treated my knee before I competed in the Rio de Janeiro Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Cup competition. I truly believe that if it hadn’t been for Maria’s treatments, I wouldn’t have achieved world class status. Maria’s years of experience and understanding of healing comes through as her treatment was very relaxing and therapeutic.
I have been going to Maria for close to ten years now. She has brought me out of serious and dangerous pain many, many times. I am deeply indebted to her for the work she has done on my injuries and medical problems! Maria is very dedicated to her craft, and is always there when I need her (not like some practitioners who are more concerned with their own schedule than if you are in real pain and need help ASAP). She is one of the rare individuals, who truly understands the importance of treating patients like human beings, not like a number. Combining technical skill with compassionate care, she creates a caring and healing environment – she is what we are all looking for – a true healer.
I have been treated by Maria for the past 12 years and will continue to do so for as long as she is in Montclair. As a dentist, I always have neck and shoulder issues and Maria’s method of ashiatsu ensures that I can work pain free. She is a caring and conscientious practitioner and it is difficult to go to anyone else because she is so good. A massage from Maria is a totally relaxing and therapeutic experience. I highly recommend her to all my friends.
I am a physician with a history of intractable muscular spasms related to three previous lumbar spinal surgeries. I was referred to Maria Margate almost two years ago during an episode of low back pain so severe that I could hardly walk. I was on multiple analgesics and at the end of my patience with my lack of progress. Maria started treating me with acupuncture and massage and I obtained almost immediate relief. More importantly, I have been without the debilitating relapses with the exception of one time in almost two years when I had not seen Maria for about three weeks. Maria’s knowledge, caring and professionalism are first rate and she has been one of the more dedicated health care providers I have known. She is a truly good person and her manner is one of empathy and caring. I recommend Maria Margate without hesitation and hope many more people discover her excellence.
Maria Margate is a superb healthcare professional who has an impressive educational background in Eastern medicine and culture from several prestigious institutions in the U.S. and in the Far East as well. I have been a cardiologist and Dean at NYU medical school for thirty years and I have chosen to receive a large part of my healthcare with Maria. As a sufferer of peripheral neuropathy (nerve inflammation), I have received significant relief and overall improvement of my condition as a direct result of Maria’s highly effective and caring with acupuncture, acupressure, and herbal medicine. Maria’s treatments have succeeded as both an integrative care plan in conjunction with the therapies of my Western medical colleagues, but also as the sole alternative treatment. Without any hesitation I strongly recommend Maria Margate as member of your heathcare team or your main health provider. I assure you that you will find Maria Margate to be truly magnificent for you and your health.
